Much to be desired[edit]

A lot of the info on this page is verifiably untrue. I don't know much about wikipedia flagging but I'd consider calling this a stub or whatever


Please do some genuine research before accusing copyvio; this is a public domain country study from the United State's Library of Congress. [1] 119 20:13, 1 Feb 2005 (UTC)


Where's china? This is a huge part of Soviet relations, no?

The Vietnam War, The Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis, Sino-Soviet Relations[edit]

Sorry, it just seems you missed out a fair bit of Soviet Foreign Policy. This is a real summary or starting point. I'm sure they're mentioned in other sections to a fuller extent but maybe you could mention that these were part of SFP so they can be explored?

Vietnam War --> aided Ho Chi minh and sent supplies to Vietnam until even after the war that helped the Vietnamese economy to survive

Korean War

--> walked out of secutiry council of UN, of which they were co-founders

--> sent troops to Korea as well

Cuban Missile Crisis

--> Castro didn't really even play an important role in the crisis, Khrushchev helped bring the Cold War to the brink of hot war

Sino-Soviet Realtions Shattered unity of Communist Bloc


• 1956: Khrushchev denounced Stalinism without Mao

• 1958: Mao bombs islands without Khrushchev

• 1960: China attacks ‘peaceful co-existence’ saying it undermines world revolution


• Soviet experts withdraw from China

• USSR doesn’t help during 1961 famine

• In a border dispute between China and India, USSR backs India

• Almost a war between China and USSR, to the extent that troops lined up at the borders, as the Chinese claimed land the Tsars had taken.

• Can see that USSR was not dominating the world through this example

• 1962: Mao criticises Khrushchev for Cuban Missile crisis

• Moscow began to pursue a policy of containment of China, isolating it by improving relations with Laos, Cambodia, Japan, etc.

This article is so positive. "The Soviets no longer sought collective but individual security, and the Pact with Hitler was signed, giving Soviets protection from the most aggressive European power and increasing Soviet sphere of influence." So increasing your sphere of influence and later occupying other states is not agression? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:32, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

More information available[edit]

This article has good information on the relations in the middle east, seriously very detailed and very informative. However, this article doesn't mention anything about Soviet-African relations (Angola, Libya would be strong topics) or Soviet-South American relations (Cuba, el Salvador, Venezuela). I'm not very good at doing research and editing so I just want to propose that someone with the skills and the time try to find some good encyclopaedic articles and maybe start a topic on some of these.
